Minced meat dumplings

Minced meat dumplings


0.55 lb minced meat, 2 medium onions, 3 cloves of garlic, you may add one tablespoon of wild garlic, salt, pepper, optionally tomato puree

1.1 lb flour (e.g. baking flour or special flour for dumplings), 1 egg (optional), 3/4-1 cup hot water, 3/4 teaspoon salt.



  1. Prepare the stuffing – cut the onion very finely and fry on a hot pan, add finely chopped garlic. When the onion is fried and softened, add minced meat and fry. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Leave to cool down. You can grind the stuffing in a blender so it will be easier to insert it into dumplings.
  3. Prepare the dough – pour flour and salt into a bowl. Add egg and stir.
  4. Next, gradually add hot boiled water and make flexible dough. Form a ball and cover it for a moment with a hot, deep plate. This will make it easier to roll the dough later.
  5. When the plate cools down, divide the dough into pieces and roll into thin cakes.
    Cut out the portions with a glass or a special device and stuff the dough with the cooled stuffing.
  6. Boil the dumplings in salted water for a few minutes after they have raised to the surface, stirring from time to time.
  7. Serve with fried onion in butter.
